Langá has been fished by the British since the early 1900’s, and has had a huge amount of work done to it in terms of fish ladders and other devices to improve its course for the salmon to run.

The Langá fishes 12 rods in July and August and is best fished with a single handed rod and small hitched flies, the most popular being mini Sunray Shadows, Langa Fancy and Arndilly Fancy. As the Langá river originates in Lake Langavatn it always has a dependable flow of water and is one of the few icelandic rivers that is truly consistent in a dry summer. The Langá remains one of the most naturally productive rivers here in Iceland.

Langá offers 36 km of fishing water, double bank, 93 pools. The fishing lodge offers good food and service to anglers.
